lot of debates over the debt ceiling. the republicans, you heard bobby jindal saying we have to stop being the stupid party. i think they are trying to figure out how do we avoid talking about the 47%. republicans are looking to change their tone for elections in 2014 and 2016. in terms of the politics on the fiscal stuff and the politics, the fight is the same. republicans don't want to raid taxes. the president wants to cut spending less severely. same fight we have seen. >> you see it the same way, same old, same old. >> it is a fight that will don't happen. they are starting to position themselves and republicans are looking to 2016 to say we are going to change what has happened and jindal signalled that in his speech earlier this week. >> perry, another topic, gun violence, no doubt we have been since newtown. there are going to be hearings on capitol hill this week. patrick leahy, he has five witnesses. the list has come out who he is going to have talking about gun violence and someone that a lot of people are familiar with is wayne la pierre of the nra will be testifying bef

be averted after how's republicans a-- house republicans agreed to suspend the debt ceiling. a measure that the democratically controlled senate agreed to vote on. we went to capitol hill to meet with senator mac thornberry of texas who's the number two republican. i asked him what he thought about the guidance and whether it answered the questions that gop members have been raising. >> not really. i think a lot of us wanted dod to be serious about explaining the effects of sequestration before we ever got to this point and that would have in our judgment helped motivate people to find another way. other spending cuts to take the place of the sequestration. and i still think there are a lot of questions as the services work through there with some -- this with some accounts exempt. some not. some are going to be hit pretty hard. >> overall from a good fashion and at least trying to make clear that some of those are going to be dramatic cuts? >> it was a beginning but i still think there are lots of details to be fleshed out that most people including most members of congress don't fully appreciate. just how painful this is going to be. >> you've been a bipartisan member up here and you're now one of the gop part of the gop leadership. what's it go

a plan on the debt ceiling in debt and appears to have won the support of both the president and senate majority leader. the republican change in direction and tone was not matched by a change in the republican party's lead. the rnc reelected the chairman after losing both the white house and ten seats in congress to democrats in that 2012 election. his job as head of the national party even as lenient -- louisiana's popular governor and from a republican both cried out for the party's revitalization, new ideas, and the voices. obama administration stalwart treasury secretary gagger and secretary of state clinton bidding farewell to the administration. clinton finally this week testifying on benghazi, trying to explain away one of the administration's biggest failures. another week in which president obama has dispatched vice-president biden to campaign against the second amendment. the president's inaugural this week. next week he launches his campaign for comprehensive immigration reform. next week senator kerry to be confirmed as the next secretary of state as early as tuesday. the president's nominee to replace the outgo

will be several skirmishes where the republicans can try out their focus, debt ceiling, and automatic spending cuts set to kick in august 1. but don't count on up compromise. >> we think the sequesters will happen. >> reporter: congressman paul ryan says he's not encouraged by president obama's words so far. >> i decided to not comment between the election and inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at, what kind of path he was putting his administration on. and all of the statements and all the comments lead me to believe he's thinking more of a political conquest than compromise. >> reporter: democrats have been talking the hard line on revenues and gun control. yet on immigration, there seems to be at least a small agreement. >> we are trying to work our way through some very difficult issues. but we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law that we can live with. >> it's my hope we'll come up with a bipartisan solution. i do think enforcement has to be a big part of it. but again, i like many of t

should add to that, a constitutional crisis in a way because this whole debt ceiling has been a weapon that the house of representatives have used to gain power. it's not just the republicans versus the democrats. it's the house versus the president. i don't know how it the play out. >> meanwhile, the marketses are on fire. the s&p 500 hitting a new five-year high along with the dow jones industrial average. what is driving the stocks and do you think it's sustainable for the year? >> the part of it that i understand is that some of the risk has been pulled out of the market. so most recently that the u.s. has got three months before the next thing happening. some of the risks. and maybe just the election was determined and people aren't necessarily happy, some are, some aren't. but it's solved. take some uncertainty away. markets don't like uncertainty. so even though it wasn't very likely the european would fall apart, even though it wasn't very likely the u.s. would fall on its debt, pulling it out of the equation lifted markets a lot. >> meanwhile, new appointment, in the obama administration. timothy geithner, last day was on friday as treasury secretary. what kind of grade

will be as strong a year from now. what we are facing is not simply the debt ceiling. what we are facing is the sequestration, the automatic cuts of a trillion dollars over 10 years, which many republicans are seeing a willingness, expressing willingness to let set in at the end of march, and that will mean another fight and struggle. >> all this will unfold in probably six months. i think he is in a good position to fight for the next six months. >> there was an interesting and little noticed thing this week. economic members in britain came out, where they have had a very tough austerity program. now they are possibly entering into a triple dip recession. it is an example, perhaps, of too much austerity. france may be an example of too much non-austerity. but if we go through sequester, people will see what those cuts mean. i think there would be a rebellion over it. >> you could hardly accuse the united states of indulging too much in austerity. we have added $5 trillion in debt. >> i am not saying that. i am saying that what we have at this moment is a decision of how much to cut and where. the democrats are recalcitrant about entitlements. republicans are almost foolish about the willi

. there will be a lot of pressure to do that. republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling. that took away a little bit of their leverage going into negotiations at the end of february. here comes paul ryan. where has he been? he is making this line in the sand now. i think the white house is concerned because this could hurt the economy going forward if we go through these deep cuts and right now the white house is saying we need to keep the economy moving. we have to keep all eyes on that and continue to have growth and jobs. there is concern for the white house. >> ryan took one of his famous charts on "meet the press." you can tell immediately what he thinks the problem is, more spending cuts are needed. paul ryan says increasing revenue is off the table for now. the gop, the tax hikes during the fiscal cliff stuff. do they do it again? >> he was also asked and side stepped whether or not you could close loopholes. it is another way to get revenue. that is what david gregory asked him. he had a nonresponse response to that. there are other ways to get revenue than across the board

representatives. republicans not only approved the debt ceiling deadline without a fight but did so without making usual demands for spending cuts. before you get too comfortable with that, think again. that debt limit increase is only a temporary three-month stopgap measure to give them more time for a budget resolution in the senate and a bigger budget battle ahead which brings me to the ducks. one lame duck to be precise. ever seen a lame duck? they can't fly far. they are lucky if they get off the ground. last week, president obama laid out his fight plan for the heights of to which he hopes to soar in his second term. his agenda may never find its wings if it is stymied in the tangle of capitol hill gridlock. a seemingly endless series of cliffs, ceilings sequesters and showdowns. the upcoming budget fight is only the first of many. remember the fiscal cliff? well, it never really went away. it was postponed for a couple months. we have the threat of automatic spending cuts looming over our heads march 1s. government shutdown on the 27th. we'll need a new spending bill to keep

chances no doubt but optimistic about solutions and that is the key ingredient missing. debt ceilings, fiscal cliffs, and most people we talk to, talk about their kids' future, their neighbor out of work, they talk about concern these have with schools and transportation, things like that. a relevant thing that i think nationally republicans aren't connecting, and we can't. we need to be the party of growth and opportunity. the optimistic, relevant, courageous. if we do, we'll win national elections again. >> social issues important to you. as a politician and person. can you stay the republican party and say, look, we understand we have disagreements come into the party anyway? >> i think these issues of life, family, marriage, kind of define who you are. we'll differ on that but if they know you care about the biggest things, roads, schools, quality of life. access to the american dream. more opportunity. they will give you a chance. it will improve the conservative government will get good results and the things people care about. that's our road back and as hap people will buy int

to raise the debt ceiling ultimately unless they get severe spending cuts and the obama administration is not going to give it to them. you're going to watch the u.s. do crazy, crazy things this year. >> he was pretty clear. he called it crazy. i talked to eric cantor earlier, the republican majority leader. he sort of said we're ready to deal and compromise, but people are very worried about what the u.s. could do. >> oh, and this latest decision to just kick the can, i hate to use the cliche, further down the road, axel neighbor is a former central banker in europe, also the head of ubs and he was absolutely in no doubt that what we are seeing in the u.s. in the political and economic process is dangerous. >> if you have the debt ceiling, the europeans will talk about how you can make that binding. in the u.s., the concern is much more whether you can lift it in time in order not to put too much break on the economy. now, the u.s. economy has bottomed out, it's coming back, and i think sooner or later the u.s. has to face the fiscal issue not just in the sense of delay
